RE: Lady K and Getting back to original topic
Appreciate comment on Lady Kidu. However if you can show me one national meri with similar qualities, you have my word, Iíll back her candidature for PM. Of course she has to get in (elected) first.
These are what I like about Lady K:
Fearless defender of the oppressed and is able to articulate their needs
Her integrity has not been soiled and sold to the gods of fame, position, mammon(money) and power
Has the quiet simplicity, dignity and humility to live and walk freely among the masses without putting on airs
Above the politics of ples (regionalism), power and position and has the personality, the brains and the bearing to keep those bastards in the Haus Tambaran honest
Epitomises all that noble womanhood was meant to be Ė mother, wife, companion to husband, counsellor, teacher, leader and practical goodness.
At the moment Lady K is head and shoulders above the pack; Iíll vote for her any day! Besides its not unthinkable or without precedent Ė Sonya Gandhi an Italian nearly carried it off in India.
To Anonymous re: posts being too long and missing the topic
Thankyou for trying to keep us honest, especially about the length of the postings. I am guilty of the first sin and maybe to some extent responsible for some of the second as well.
You are right Ė itís a talkfest, but thatís what Kumul Development forum was meant to be, a place for discussion and exchange of ideas. So forgive us for our verbal indiscretions or should I say verbal diarrhoea (maus wara).
For those who just wish to chat and add their one-liners there are various boards on PNGSCAPE. I might add, however, that many of those who contribute there have taken vitriol, cynicism, regionalism, sledging, abuse and plain foul-mouthedness to high art.
As for your assertion that we have digressed and deviated from the original posting, please take time to read them all. We have canvassed a broad range of related issues and I believe after 40 postings the original thread is still there.
We welcome your comments so lets hear your take.
